Karen Kraushaar - one of the woman Politico first reported on 10 days ago.  A woman who was sexually harassed while working for Citizen Cain at the NRA.  

A woman who is an Ivy League graduate - Brown.

With a Masters in Journalism from Michigan.  

A journalist.  

A Communications Director for the Treasury Department, and that means she's in the Rolodexes, err Blackberries of a boatload of Washington reporters.  

A woman woman knows how to stand before the press and talk extemporaneously and intelligently.  

A wife.

A mother.  

A woman who represents in many ways the gains and struggles women have had over the last 50 years.        

And the comments on Karen are coming in:

She is “an extraordinarily good person,” said Jennie Williams, a friend and Atlanta equestrian. “She is very reliable and has lots of integrity. I don’t know what happened. I don’t want to know. Enough is enough. She is quality.”

A former colleague at the National Restaurant Association who asked not to be identified said of Kraushaar, “The woman is a consummate professional. What I saw was an extremely talented woman. A professional, knowledgeable woman and nothing more.”

A woman you - Citizen Cain - are not going to smear as 'troubled women.'

The trouble is back on you Citizen Cain.  And, Karen Kraushaar wants to have a press conference with all of the women you harassed Citizen Cain.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
